Enemy Elite Friday: Giovanni Messe (Italy)

"Messe was an Italian field marshal and politician.  In the Second World War, he was captured in Tunisia, but made chief of staff of the Italian Co-Belligerent Army after the armistice of September 1943.  He is considered by many to have been the best Italian general of the war."  He would receive the Knight's Cross to the Iron Cross for his actions on the Eastern Front on January 23rd, 1942 as Maresciallo d'Italia of the Corpo di spedizione italiano in Russia.
Another capable enemy elite,
